The belts share attachments with the rollbar and chassis (some the same as front belts). You would NEVER want to attach any seat belt to the seat itself or a bench. All seat belts should be attached to the chassis or reinforced parts of the tub or body.
The belts are three point and self retracting......so they only need TWO points of attachement to the floor behind. One point holds the retracting mechanism and is the source of both the lap belt and the shoulder belt.
Ok, thanks. I didn't use the link to the previous thread. I see it now. I was surprised you mentioned the seatbelts are attached to the floor. both the 3rdrowseating.net and it's competitor littleseats.com state that for the retractable 3 point harnesses, they are mounted to the seat frame, not the chassis. My wife's DII middle and 3rd row seating have the seatbelts female connectors mounted to the seat directly, as well as the Exmoor lock-and-fold. I would think that mounted to floor is only when the seat frame is not designed to support the full force required.
Take a look at this pic and you can see the retractable belt mounted to the seat frame: http://www.littleseats.com/other.htm
